Leave it to Fox News Business’ senior vice-president and managing editor Neil Cavuto, to drop a couple of transphobic jokes during a news segment introducing his audience to Caitlyn Jenner on Monday.
Before tossing the segment to reporter Dagen McDowell, Cavuto asks “What the hell is going on!?”
During her segment, McDowell suggested that Caitlyn was just doing this to “one-up” stepdaughter Kim Kardashian.
“[Kim Kardashian] announces last night that she’s pregnant with her second child – well, you know what, I can do you one better than that,” McDowell suggested as Jenner’s response. “That’s how he unveiled his new identity.”
Cavuto then introduced Fox Business’ Charles Payne as “Charlene Payne,” another attempt to mock Jenner’s transition.
“Rome, final days — but that’s fine,” Cavuto declared.
